A former Premier League star has been jailed after defrauding his friends and family members out of £15m.

Ex-Charlton Athletic player Richard Rufus was sentenced to seven-and-a-half years after he claimed to be a successful foreign exchange trader and convinced victims to invest in his “low-risk” scheme.

The 47-year-old was found guilty of fraud, money laundering and carrying out a regulated activity without authorisation at Southwark Crown Court on Thursday.
